Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone from the UK has bought and uses Cakeboss? I'm interested in purchasing it as now that I have orders coming in I feel like I need to be straight and more organised and this looks just perfect.

I'm not quite sure what I am worried about, obviously dollars can be ignored and I can just think of it as pounds instead, I think it is little things such as the measurements side and taxes etc. I am just wondering if all that will be usable for me.

Anyway I'd be really grateful if any UK users could give me any feedback! icon_smile.gif

Thank you!

CC user kelleym is the owner of CakeBoss Software, you could send her a pm and I'm sure she will reply. However I'm pretty sure from reading on here that you can change the currency and I'm also fairly sure that you could change the amount of tax you need to apply....

Thank you for those urls zetasilver.

I see they have a recipe conversion too, I usually work that out myself but that is really helpful having a calculator to do it!

Thank you Dayti, I have already pm'd her and am waiting for a reply, however it was only yesterday I sent the message and we are in different time zones etc.

It would just be nice to hear from some UK users if there are any. icon_smile.gif

Unfortunately there is more to business than just costing ingredients and labour.

... council certification, insurance, utilities, cleanining supplies, disposable items like gloves paper towels, office consumables [paper, pens, folders], photography, web-site, delivery costs ...are a few things that come to mind. These expenses, that your business incurs, are costs that you are bearing ...

Those are my thoughts exactly, with cakeboss I can keep track of everything even my travel costs for buying supplies etc too!

I've been so busy with my weekend orders I haven't had time to add everything in yet but I've had a play and it looks good so far!
